Dear Readers,

尊敬的读者:

Designing residential projects in Singapore has become more challenging in recent years as the density is higher and apartment units are getting smaller, leaving less room for creativity and design exploration. Nevertheless, these constraints may also turn into opportunities to examine other aspects like efficient, creative and flexible use of space, or the use of communal and landscaped area.

近年来,新加坡的住宅项目的设计已经变得越来越有 挑战性,因为住宅的密度更高而单位则更小,从而留给建筑 师发挥创造性和设计探究的空间变小。然而,这些限制同时 可以转化为审视其他方面的契机,比如使用空间的高效性, 创造性和灵活性,或者是公共空间和景观区域的使用。

In order to stay competitive in the local residential arena, we have to continue to hone our design skills for high-rise residences. Besides achieving high efficiency and saleable area for developers, we also need to explore new design concepts and ideas. Projects such as Golden Mile Complex which offers outdoor living with the provision of open roof terrace, River Place which brought the idea of shophouse living into a condominium, Sky@eleven which manipulated the unit layout to capitalise on the site’s attributes and achieve the dual view concept, and Jardin which promotes the garden living concept by introducing duplex units with landscaped sky terraces, are some examples where DP Architects pushed design boundaries.

为了在本地住宅设计领域保持领先地位,我们必须 继续磨砺设计高层住宅的能力。除了为开发商实现住宅的 高效性和可售面积,我们同时也需要探索新的设计理念和 想法。就以下几个作品为例,可以看到我们的住宅项目从 不同方面体现了创造力:黄金地带购物中心( Golden Mile Complex)采用了开放式的屋顶露台以提供户外的生活空 间,翠河坊( River Place)将店屋的生活方式的理念融入公寓 的设计,天一阁( Sky@eleven)利用场地的特性来设计单元布 局以达到双重的景观概念,渣甸公寓( Jardin)则采用带有和 景观结合的空中露台的复式单位而推广花园式生活。

In a highly reactive environment like Singapore where government rulings are reviewed on a frequent basis – such as the recent control of roof terrace and private enclosed space – designers need to keep up with the changes quickly. Improving our knowledge and application of authority and construction codes at the design stage is also crucial to achieve an integrated and well-resolved design solution.

在新加坡这样一个高度活跃的环境,政府法规被频繁 地修订,比如近期对屋顶露台和私人围合空间的修改,因此 设计师需要很快地适应其变化。在设计阶段更好地掌握和 使用建筑法规对实现一个综合且完善的设计方案至关重要。

The opportunities ahead are tremendous: the Singapore government has recently announced that 700,000 new homes will be required, should the population increase to an estimated 6.9 million by 2030. This will not only allow us to capitalise on our market share in local residential projects, but most importantly, to explore and create interesting designs in both public and private housing in the coming years.

700,000套新住房,到 2030年新加坡人口将增长到大约 690

SBF Center Singapore

SBF Center is a 31-storey commercial development located in the heart of the Central Business District along Robinson Road. Inspired by the small, urban park that once sat on the site, SBF Center aims to bring back the enclave of green by creating pockets of verdant spaces interspersed throughout the building. A series of terraced gardens breaks down the imposing building mass to a more intimate scale. This collection of tiered gardens forms an urban park which can be enjoyed by the community. Building corners are rounded to mimic the organic environment. Lines of nature are mapped onto surfaces of various thickness and density. This expression continues to the roof forming a unique roofscape. A sky terrace deck with pool and gym facilities promotes wellness of its users.

新加坡工商联合总会中心( SBF Center)是一栋高 31层的商 业发展项目,坐落在沿罗敏申路的中央商务区。受到场地原先 的小型城市公园的启发,建筑师设计了一系列葱郁的景观空间 穿插在建筑中,以再现场地原有的绿色环境。一系列的露台将 建筑的大体量转化为更加亲切的尺度,所形成的多层城市公园 服务于整个社区。

Residential College 4 and College of Alice & Peter Tan Singapore 第四寄宿学院和陈爱丽丝与 彼德寄宿学院 新加坡

Located in NUS University Town, the design for the 38,000sqm Residential College 4 and College of Alice & Peter Tan is inspired by the traditional Southeast Asian house. Deep roof overhangs shade the exterior walls and window openings to control interior heat gain. The north-south facing buildings have individual podiums set away from each other, maximising façade area for cross ventilation. Architectural elements including ventilation blocks, louvred monsoon windows, framed glazing with vertical accents, and a unifying railing and canopy across the podium are kit-of-parts employed to create a strong and coherent visual identity for the colleges.

第四寄宿学院和陈爱丽丝与彼德寄宿学院( Residential College 4 and College of Alice & Peter Tan)坐落在新加坡国立大学城,其建筑面积为 38,000 平方米。学院设计的灵感 来源于东南亚的传统住宅形式。建筑的深挑檐在外墙面和窗口形成较深的阴影以避免室 内温度的升高。南北朝向的建筑分别有独立的群房,从而最大化立面面积以促进空气流 通。所采用的建筑元素包括通风良好的体量、遮挡季风的百叶窗、竖向的框架玻璃窗、 统一的裙房栏杆和顶棚,从而创造了一个统一深刻的视觉特性。

COSL Singapore Support Base Singapore

The Benoi Road office and industrial facility of COSL, a Chinese offshore oil-drilling service provider, takes on a U-shaped layout which allows greater flexibility and efficiency within the parallelogram-shaped site. The resulting large storage space in the middle, which is adjacent to the harbour, allows effective transportation of goods and materials via the waterway. The factories and warehouse are aligned to the northern and southern part of the site. Two L-shaped office blocks separate the office function from the courtyard-facing leisure space and screen the storage area from the main road. The office blocks have a panoramic view of the entire site’s operations with the harbour as a backdrop.

Mövenpick Hotel Heritage 1940 Singapore 新加坡

A conservation project, the hotel comprises two three-storey colonial military barracks that were built in 1940. Inspired by the historical heritage of Singapore, the design brings together elements of tradition and modernity. The link between the two buildings is revitalised into a triple-volume space framed by lattice patterns which are inspired by the rice grain. Thoughtful interior details create a cosy, nostalgic experience: the floor joists of old shophouses are introduced as ceiling rafters in the guest rooms, dim sum carriers serve as baskets for toiletries, carpets with intricate batik-inspired patterns that speak of the Peranakan culture, conservation doors that reinterpret colonial architecture and the pitched roof on level three that evokes memories of childhood homes.

莫文皮克传承酒店 1940 ( Mövenpick Hotel Heritage 1940)是一个历史建筑保 护项目,旅店由两栋三层建于 1940 年的殖民时期的兵营组成。旅店的设计灵感 来自新加坡的历史遗产,并将传统和现代的元素相融合。

两栋建筑之间的联系是一个三倍体量的空间,其格子框架受到稻粒的启发。 精心设计的室内细部营造了温馨且怀旧的体验:老店屋的地板托梁作为客房的天 花板椽条,点心篮用来盛放盥洗用品,地毯上复杂的蜡防印花图案展示了娘惹文 化,传统门的使用重新诠释了殖民建筑,第三层的斜屋顶则唤起了儿时的回忆。

Paterson Collection Singapore

Located within minutes of Orchard Road, Paterson Collection comprises two 19-storey towers that look towards the prestigious shopping belt. The 85-unit development is made up of two-bedroom and three-bedroom units, and single level and duplex penthouses; all encased in fullheight glass for magnificent views from all corners of every apartment. Aluminium screens, set away from the glass walls and arranged in a playful pattern, ensure privacy. Two levels of amenities including pools, playground, gym, function room and pavilions are located within a landscaped deck. A sky terrace allows outdoor dining and houses a jacuzzi. The buildings respond well to the site, surrounding views and orientation. The sleek and contemporary form exudes style and elegance befitting a high-end residence.

南京软件园

Located in Nanjing Pukou, this 35ha development will house centres of technology research and development, investment funding and multimedia. The project employs low carbon eco-technology and modern urban design strategies, and is guided by four key principles: dynamic mixed-use, seamless connectivity, unique identity and ecological design. Two landmark towers form the gateway to the park, and a green belt acts as a seamless pedestrian connector throughout the development. Physical connectivity is provided by an extensive network of roads and public transport nodes. Open networking spaces improve the porosity of the technology park. Environmental sustainability is a primary driver of the architectural design, and the project employs many strategies such as the generous use of green walls to reduce heat absorption.

南京软件园( Nanjing Software Park)坐落在南京市浦口区,占地 35公顷。 该项目是一个集合了科技研究发展、项目投资和多媒体的中心。该项目采用 低炭生态技术和现代城市设计策略,遵守了四个原则:动态的综合利用、流 畅的连通性、独特的可识别性和生态设计。 两个标志性的塔楼形成了园区的入口,而一条绿化带使行人在整个开发 区中活动流畅。道路和公共交通枢纽所建立的大范围的交通网络实现了园区 的连通性,而开放的交流空间则增进了交互性。由于建筑设计的一个重要出 发点是环境的可持续发展,因此建筑师采用了诸多相关策略,比如利用大量 的绿色植物覆盖墙体从而降低热量吸收。

The project takes advantage of the site’s vast water body in the north and lush greenery in the south. The balconies of the façade facing Bedok Reservoir are designed to resemble undulating water waves. The towers are strategically planned to maximise the views of the reservoir while minimising the solar effects of the western sun. The carefully studied building orientation places more than 94 percent of the external walls away from the west. 50,000平方米的滨海涛住宅( Waterfront Waves)是位于勿洛蓄水池 路面向水景的私有住宅项目,由八座 15层高的塔楼组成。滨海涛住宅 充分地利用了北部大面积的水域和南部葱郁的绿树。

The Fullerton Pavilion, the first and only floating lifestyle destination in Singapore, is a hybrid between a building and a marine vessel. Measuring 6m tall with a spacious 23.5m diameter, it has breathtaking views of Marina Bay. The design of the façade envelope starts as solid opaque panels at the main entrance and gradually evolves into clear glass at the dining area to take advantage of the 360-degree views. The outer layer of the façade is made of laminated glass, providing good acoustics. At the exterior of the façade frames, LED light strips are integrated between the glass panels; the lighting can be customised to suit different event and festive requirements.

To truly understand the future of housing in Singapore, it is important to first consider the past. In the 1950s, there was a severe shortage of housing in Singapore; some 75 percent of the population lived in crowded tenements and unplanned settlements. Suburban new towns were created to re-house the people. By the early 1960s, this process was well underway, with spacious new apartment blocks being built throughout the island. In theory, these new housing complexes were to be self-sufficient communities that provide for all the needs of the inhabitants. However, these areas were not able to provide sufficient employment and many residents began to DP 07

Overtime, these towns came to serve as commuter settlements with most daily activities taking place outside the home. This trend has continued. Today, we are served by a transportation system and a city which can fulfill almost all of our daily requirements. As such, some Singaporean residents feel they do not

The importance of these amenities is expressed on the exterior where the vertical volume of the buildings is punctuated with the landscaped sky gym, creating a signature void. There is also a dedicated concierge service on hand to support the residents’ busy lifestyles. Residents may even enjoy the privilege of housekeeping and hospitality services extended by the Mandarin Orchard Singapore. In Twin Peaks, every effort has been taken to make sure the residents are afforded the

luxurious lifestyle they desire, one which begins as soon as they receive their new apartment. For this purpose, each unit comes fully furnished with high quality furniture and classic designer pieces. Twin Peaks is a product of Singapore’s unique sociopolitical climate and is the first of a new generation of residences which truly caters to a contemporary city lifestyle. In designing this new typology, the architects of Twin Peaks have understood that today’s urban dweller needs a home that is fully integrated with the city yet at the same time separate, and have provided a luxurious escape in which to unwind and enjoy the view.

优和苑( euHabitat)坐落在新加坡东部 的一个郁郁葱葱的热带环境之中,是一个 拥有四种不同建筑类型的独具特色的住宅 项目。优和苑的设计基于对现代新加坡人 独特的生活方式和家庭组合形式的理解, 包括了四种建筑类型:联排别墅、公寓、 套房式住宅以及以家居办公( SOHO)为灵感 而设计的住宅。特别值得一提的是优和苑 的多个游泳池和大量的景观区域,它们作 为自然分隔以保证人们的隐私和有效降低 噪声,给人们营造了一个生活在自然环境 中却与周围都市相分离的感觉。本着对住 宅需求的深刻理解,建筑师创造了一个尊 重隐私并同时拥有自然环境以及便利生活 条件的综合社区。 Sited at Jalan Eunos in the Bedok area, euHabitat is a condominium development that boasts an integrated environment. Inspired by the surrounding landscape, this development is ecologically sensitive. It also aims to achieve a character that is diverse and personal. The concept brings together a collection of four different lifestyles, catering to a variety of living arrangements of contemporary families. Four housing typologies are differentiated as: Townhouse, Condominium, Suite and SOHO.

climate, but also reflects the expanse of the sky above it. Here, architecture truly embraces nature. The scenery changes from moment to moment as the sun and clouds pass through the sky. At the entry level of the condominium, the covered gathering spaces between adjacent buildings are naturally ventilated and densely planted, accessible to the residents at all times. The walls and windows of the suites are adapted specifically for privacy and sun orientation. The horizontal aluminium louvres shade the glass and visually unify the elevations of these singlebedroom units. The interior is animated by natural light filtering through the folding louvre panels. The façade gently undulates as the panels open and fold, creating a rippled surface of contrasting light and shadow. As a result, it allows the ability to modulate the sun and air, and achieves both privacy and openness. As the demand for ‘flexibility’ has come to the fore, the SOHO apartments provide a large space where dining, cooking, meeting and recreation come together. The open plan is changeable without losing its coherence. Capitalising on the high ceiling, the residents are given the opportunities to individualise their own upper mezzanine space.

Inspired by different aspects of nature, euHabitat becomes a dynamic residential community that addresses the increasing desire to live in harmony with nature. The mix of living units of different sizes and types are distributed throughout the site, offering a variety of conditions to meet each tenant’s needs. A variety of interior and exterior spaces are generated with varying degrees of access and privacy. Thus each component opens up its interior to the nature, embracing the water, weather, sunlight and breezes, effectively integrating architecture with the elements. DP 11

从公司成立最初开始, DPA 已经开始研究并发展住宅 设计,从而满足新加坡不断增长的人口需求。在过去的 50 年 内,随着市场需求的发展成熟,公寓设计已经远远超越了 基本住宅的要求,而是更多地为适应新的生活方式而设计。 在宏观尺度上,整个场地规划中公共和私人空间的关系 以及建筑与景观的关系是长期关注的考虑因素。比如翠湾园 ( The Bayshore, 1997)和翠河坊( River Place, 1999),都在场地几何 形状的平衡性、公共设施、建筑体量和视觉走廊等方面展示 了娴熟的规划手法。项目精心的规划为住户创造了独具特色 和有归属感的生活空间。 Na

由于自然环境可以作为个体单位生活空间的延伸,公 共设施以及室内外之间的空间已经变得越来越受欢迎。佛 罗里殿公寓( Floridian, 2012)进一步发展了这一理念:一系列 阶梯式的泳池通过精心规划的景观和建筑朝向加强了私密 性。 eCO公寓( eCO, 预计 2015年完成)利用场地的自然地形和 多个附加的泳池将场地巧妙地划分成多个不同类型的单位– 每个都有其独特的环境。 其他项目比如渣甸公寓( Jardin, 2012)和 The Minton 公寓 ( The Minton, 2014),则将绿色的景观空间作为重点:前者采 用了一个深深的公共阳台,而后者则在一大片绿地中拥有独 特的公共设施。与此相似, Pavillion 11公寓( Pavillion 11, 2009) 、天一阁( Sky@eleven, 2010)和特联大厦( The Trillium, 2011)中, 个体单位的布局通过最大化景观和自然通风来呼应环境,同 时保持私密性和安全性。单位类型在空间上则变得越来越复 杂多样化,以适应开放式的生活空间或是多代同堂的家庭, 并进一步强调了内外空间之间的模糊界限。 由于住宅设计已经变得越来越精致,所以 DPA不断地创 造出新的空间理念,同时与自然以及恰当的空间规划紧密 相关,遵循了尊重住户隐私的基本原则。 DP Architects has been involved in residential design since its early years as Design Partnership. The firm’s first condominium project, also one of the first condominiums in Singapore, Ridgewood Condominium, a 20-storey, 464unit development was completed in 1981. It offered a Hawaiian theme to the architecture and a garden landscape for the residents. In those days, living in a condominium was associated with exclusivity and privacy, a prestigious address, an assortment of on-site facilities and amenities, as well as a more high-end style of living compared with the cookie-cutter type of public housing that was predominant in a young nation like Singapore. Today, condominium design has become increasingly challenging as developers shift towards marketing a complete lifestyle package rather than simply an apartment unit. Another challenge also originates from the growing improvements within the public housing sector, as older estates receive upgrading via the Neighbourhood Renewal Programme, ensuring that residents are provided with quality living through the addition of amenities around the estate. In recent years, in line with the nation’s strategy to transform HDB estates into a world-class living environment, the government has also launched plans to remake Singapore’s heartland. New towns like Punggol and Sengkang are slated to become ‘eco-towns’ complete with waterfront public housing and amenities, a typology that was previously reserved only for luxury condominiums. There is also the rise of other high-rise public housing developments such as The Pinnacle at Duxton offering sky gardens and premium location, as well as SkyVille and SkyTerrace at the Dawson Estate area which offer flexible flat layouts that encourage multi-generational living, all of which were selling points previously identified with private condominiums.

THE EVOLUTION OF DPA’S RESIDENTIAL PROJECTS DP 建筑师事务所 住宅项目的发展 By Leong Wei Lin


Designers have to rise to the challenge of addressing the narrowing gap between public housing and condominium developments, and seek ways to enhance designs so as to increase the attractiveness and marketability of our clients’ developments. Using a selection of condominium projects, Design in Print examines the evolution of DP Architects’ design strategies and responses over the years.

The Bayshore, completed in 1997, is designed as an up-market condominium within a lush tropical setting, which has good views towards the sea. With a high level of visibility along East Coast Parkway, the objective was to create an identifiable architectural statement.

DEVELOPMENT MIX As the public housing market evolves over the years to provide consumers with diversified offerings, and the average buyer becoming savvier in evaluating the merits of a potential home, designers today need to think out of the box to offer the best of functionality, design features and aesthetics. On the macro level, looking at condominium developments as a whole, it is important to capitalise on site advantages, as sensitive site response can often contribute to the uniqueness of a development.

With increasing competition, designers must step up to the challenge to develop new design strategies for condominiums The development has a relatively formal layout with a strong symmetrical axis in the overall site plan. The development is dominated by two pairs of 30-storey blocks, each pair linked by a 12-storey block. Articulation of the façade is created by the interplay of building elements, which results in a sculptured massing capped by a cantilevered trellis. Typical unit layouts are arranged symmetrically around the service core. This example of non-differentiated unit layouts is something less seen in today’s condominium developments. The success of The Bayshore lies in the generous garden setting which provides ample outdoor space for the occupants.

River Place, completed just two years after The Bayshore, is situated at a very strategic location at the fringe of the downtown district, where the site is bound by Havelock Road, Clemenceau Avenue and the Singapore River, as well as being adjacent to the historical district of Robertson Quay. The planning strategy adopted responds to the variety of urban conditions present

in the unique site location, offering three architectural forms within a single development, which was not commonly seen during that time. It consisted of a high-density slab block that contained the majority of the required apartment floor area lining the city edges, a low-density block at a more intimate scale for the communal open spaces and the riverfront, and a taller point block as a focus. This

design approach gave rise to more than a hundred different types of apartment layouts, dispelling any form of anonymity normally associated with large housing developments and catered to a varied group of potential buyers. This approach also offered each resident a unique sense of place and identity.

In 2012, DPA completed Floridian, a development situated along Bukit Timah Road that redefines residential living via a hospitality-oriented approach. The experience celebrates the daily act of returning home, taking reference from the coastal lifestyle of Miami, Florida. Comprising eleven 10-storey towers with a total of 336 units, the towers fall under different themes and, through subtle differences in architectural language, manage to have varying characters while still belonging to a collective whole. The Keys are positioned like a promontory right in between the lap pool and main swimming pool, and characterise the entrance with the corner timber treatment at the communal green platforms on alternate levels. Adjacent to the lap pool, the Downtown towers play up an urban quality of clean solid lines and accent colours as a reflection of the young urbanite’s lifestyle. Aligned next to The Keys is The Verandah which is distinctive because of the communal rooftop terraces and gardens that embellish the façade and roofscape with lush green foliage. The Hideaway and Pavilion Towers house most of the prime four and fourplus bedroom units and are defined by the generous, screened balconies.

Distinctive characters of the towers cater to a wide demographic Overall, the various towers with their varied attributes and distinctive designs echo the theme of Floridian living – a touch of good living with many lifestyle alternatives amid a lush waterfront environment.

Located along Bedok South Avenue 3 and conceived as a ‘community in a garden’, eCO, to be completed in 2015, offers 748 living units with five residential typologies within a single condominium development. This level of choice addresses the present trend and future direction of housing where multitude of needs have to be addressed, and diversity of options becomes an expectation within a single development. The prestige of the Townhouses, comfort of the Condos and Lofts, exclusivity of the Suites and flexibility of the SOHO-style units come together in the

eCO, strengthening community relationships while meeting the lifestyle choices of each individual. eCO also offers 100 percent pool view for all units, with tower blocks enjoying a desirable north-south orientation. While the townhouses take advantage of the site terrain, and are located on the highest point of the site to enjoy sweeping views of the mature heritage trees along the east boundary, the resultant east-west orientation of the units is mitigated by providing ample louvre screening.

While site constraints and floor area efficiency requirements do not usually allow for extensive landscape and amenities, eCO atypically manages to provide different pool types, such as a 50m lap pool, children’s pool, a recreational pool and aqua therapy pools. Taking into consideration busy lifestyles, fitness opportunities are also provided not simply by providing exercise stations, but by crafting the verdant landscape to incorporate an ecological nature trail, bio ponds, and other themed gardens.

COMMUNAL SPACES, AMENITIES & LANDSCAPE

condominiums like The Bayshore organised extensive landscaping and pools at the ground level.

In the past, typically the larger developments would have the luxury of extensive landscaping, and landscaping was largely limited to the ground level. Today, many developments provide landscaping not just at the grounds, but also at sky terraces and gardens. Vertical greening has also become popular in recent years. The advent of sky terraces, gardens and vertical green while being said to address the wants of consumers, can also be attributed in part to URA’s and BCA’s urban and Green Mark guidelines. The responsibility of designers is not to simply maximise the permissible bonus gross floor area afforded by such schemes, but to utilise every square metre thoughtfully and with creativity.

Designers need to generate creative interpretations of the residential landscape to produce high-quality differentiated offerings One example that demonstrates creativity in

The experience of the scenic gardenscape

the use of greening and landscaping options is Jardin, completed in 2012. The design of Jardin incorporates two main ideas – a ‘vertical’ garden setting and the French notion of living. These concepts are pivotal architectural formgenerators, and encapsulate new pleasures of high-rise living and modern lifestyles.

begins upon entry to the development, where residents and visitors are greeted by a green terrain that berms and elevates the building. The combination of French and garden themes epitomises the spirit of this exciting residential property, that of providing quality and tasteful living amid clever landscaping that challenges the conventional notions of residential landscaping.

In Jardin, where architecture and landscape merge into a living environment, the pleasure of living in a high-rise garden environment is materialised. At each alternate level, extensive gardens extend from the loft units, serving as deep communal ‘balconies’. Besides functionally providing shade and buffer from city noise, these gardens connect the units’ living spaces, allowing for use as social spaces.

On the other side of the size and scale spectrum, currently under construction and to be completed in 2014, is The Minton, a suburban condominium development that reflects the increasingly sophisticated demands of the modern homeowner and markets a lifestyle package for the whole family. The Minton comprises ten 15-storey, eight 17storey apartment blocks and two basement car parks with a total of 1,145 units including 24 units of penthouses. The designers have taken full advantage of the site topography in the use of open spaces and landscaping whereby one can enjoy distinctively different

experiences, facilitated by bridges and sky terraces connecting the blocks to support the activities throughout the development that cater to all ages and lifestyles. Unlike older developments, The Minton follows the increasing trend of providing not just the basic amenities, but a much wider range that is set attractively within a cleverly designed landscape. It boasts of one of the largest clubhouses in Singapore. Beyond the amenities commonly found in most condominiums, The Minton also has dedicated rooms for yoga, billiards, table soccer, karaoke, piano and table-tennis to name a few. Further commercial

facilities such as childcare and retail are housed in the clubhouse’s annex building. Other recreational and sports facilities are strategically placed around the entire development like an indoor badminton court, playgrounds, an 82-seat library, a 50m lap pool, a 20m heated pool, hydromassage pavilions, onsen spas, fitness stations and a jogging track. The extensive provision of communal facilities goes above and beyond the typical facilities found in most public housing estates, coupled with exclusivity and privacy; and is made possible by the critical mass of households in this large estate.

UNIT CONFIGURATION Condominium developments usually have the advantage of location, and, oftentimes, the site affords beautiful vistas that designers capitalise on by maximising viewing angles for as many units as possible.

whereby provision of prime views have to be balanced with the treatment of the less desirable east-west facing façades. Creative, atypical unit layouts is one way of achieving this with success.

Completed in 2009, Pavilion 11 consists of two elegant towers that stand proudly on a gentle sloping site in a staggered arrangement for optimum solar orientation and full capitalisation on the magnificent views towards Orchard Road, the Central Business District, and the nearby nature reserve. Living rooms are deftly ‘nudged’ slightly out of alignment, resulting in 270-degree, unobstructed, extraneous views from the living area balconies. Creative use and positioning of dedicated, private lifts allow access to units via the living rooms; and the flowing seamless space creates an expansive view beyond the balcony.

Among the tallest condominiums in Singapore, Sky@eleven was completed in 2010 and comprises four blocks of 43-storey apartment towers within a verdant landscape in Thomson Road. The blocks are planned in linear form to capitalise on the city view to the south and MacRitchie Reservoir to the north. Privacy and exclusivity are reflected in the planning of the typical vertical circulation core, where just two or three apartments share a common lift lobby. Each apartment is dual-facing, ensuring good lighting and crossventilation throughout. By strategically stretching the unit layout, and situating the entrance to open to the family space, long narrow corridors leading to bedrooms are avoided while enabling all bedrooms and living spaces to have unobstructed views. Such a layout is refreshing and conducive to home life as it brings family members past common living spaces before entering the individual’s space.

Above: The Trillium’s site plan showing the spacing and orientation of the towers. Left: The ground storey approach to one of the towers.

The Trillium is a premium high-rise condominium situated within an urban setting in River Valley and was completed in 2011. Comprising three 29-storey towers and one basement car park, the development is sited on a long and narrow plot along Kim Seng Road, surrounded by other high-rise buildings. This created a potential issue of overlooking units. Each tower was then designed with a clover plan with only three promontory units per storey for maximum 270-degree views and privacy.

Unit layouts have to maximise functionality while optimising site opportunities

Left: The Trillium’s tower orientation maintains the privacy of each unit, and overcomes the constraints of a slender plot.

The clover plan gives The Trillium its signature trefoil form – with it, each tower is articulated as three slender stacks, thus avoiding the massive-block effect. The towers are then spaced apart at the maximum distance possible with lush landscaping in between to minimise the overpowering effect of the towers over the Kim Seng Road streetscape. The private lift lobby, balconies and living room can be amalgamated into one continuous deck by means of sliding doors, allowing residents generous spaces for contemporary outdoor ‘sky-living’.

DP Architects’ portfolio of condominium projects dating from the 1990s to the present demonstrates that designers’ abilities, adaptability and creativity is critical when dealing with the challenges over the years, be it site constraints, urban and building guidelines, or changing societal trends. With numerous residential developments currently under construction and in the pipeline, innovation takes priority so as to continually refresh design solutions.

The design of Ridgewood Condominium, one of the first condominiums in Singapore, places a strong emphasis on good orientation and luscious landscaping. With 75 percent of the land area devoted to both hard and soft landscaping, the setting created is of a lush tropical garden. The buildings are sited to respond to the gently sloping topography. Two major open spaces are created: an open hilltop area and a lower tree-covered area where the swimming pool, squash and tennis courts are located. In this lower area, the presence of trees and plants creates a sense of privacy for the users of the facilities and for the residents in nearby units. 联合设计/In association with Hogan, Cobeen, Weitz and Associates of Hawaii. 设计团队/Project team: Koh Seow Chuan, Gan Eng Oon, Loke Kwong Yoon, Teo Koon Hai and Peter Lee
